it started about 25 minutes ago. our hurricane sandy coverage begins with chief meteorologist doug kammerer, who has been tracking the storm throughout the day. doug? >> yeah, watching this storm out there right now, you can see where this is. right now, down through portions of cape may county, new jersey, that's where it's coming ashore right now. it was moving extremely fast, at 28 miles an hour. but looking at some of the latest imagery here, it looks like it's really starting to slow down. waiting to see what's going on. you can notice very dry air wrapping around the center. and the rain just cutting off. right now, right around the philadelphia area. they're no longer seeing the heavy rain. we, however, are continuing to see the heavy rain. the latest advisory as of 5:00, had winds of 90 miles an hour. a very strong category 1 storm. the pressure down to 940 millibars. this storm has now set all-time low pressure records for atlanticcity, for trenton, new jersey and for philadelphia. all-time lowest pressure ever recorded. and that goes back to the super storm of '93. even b
declared across our entire area. doug kammerer right now is here to explain why we should keep a close eye on this one. >> the reason for this, jim, is not because we have a hurricane to the south. it's because what's going to be happening after. this right now, it says it's a hurricane, but most likely it's a tropical storm. but do not let that fool. the 8:00 advisory, i bet it will come out as tropical storm sandy, but it doesn't matter, don't let a weakening storm now fool you later. because this storm is going to continue to make its way up the coast. right now has winds of 57 miles an hour. that was the latest as of the 5:00 advisory from the national hurricane center, moving to the north at 7 miles per hour. it is expected to become a tropical storm most likely around 00, 11:00 advisory. the track is what you want to focus on here. the cone of uncertainty takes it anywhere from boston, to the richmond area and anywhere in between is going to see very strong winds. not going to be the rain, most likely not the flooding in our region, it will be the winds. let's take a look
the shoreline, too. we begin with storm team 4 chief meteorologist doug kammerer with new information about sandy's track and the time line for potentially dangerous conditions here. doug? >> i think we're finally starting to understand just how big this storm is going to be and just how devastating it could potentially be. we've been talking about it for over a week now, making its way very close to our region. you can see where it is right now, and this is the interesting thing here. it is still moving out to sea, northeast right now at about 15 miles per hour, but you can see where the rain is lining up, and we are starting to see rain now across our region. we've also started to see -- rather tropical storm-force gusts of 30 to 40 miles an hour in parts of the area. again, tropical storm-force winds of 39 miles an hour or higher and we've seen those down toward the shore. now, current location, well down to the south and east of us, but what we're seeing is winds of 75 miles an hour close to the center here and the pressure now down to 952 millibars. that's a very strong storm. that is
even stronger today as it moves over jamaica and heads to cuba. doug kammerer has more on how sandy could have an impact on us here. doug? >> it really could have an impact on our weather as we make our way into the weekend and early next week. hurricane sandy with winds of 80 miles an hour, just off the coast of the eastern portions of jamaica right now. really hit that eastern side very, very hard. winds upwards of 80 miles an hour, with stronger gusts. trees down, power outages there. now it's on its way over toward cuba. video a little bit earlier this morning as it was making its way onshore. the incredible surf this storm is producing, we'll see it move up the east coast over the next few days. it will be in cuba, bahamas, florida, carolina also, and portions of the northeast. the potential is there for this to be a very dangerous storm. here it is right there. winds right now 80 miles an hour. moving to the north at 14 miles per hour. on that track, moves very close to miami, just off the coast there. and then right up the coast, staying offshore through most of this time per
